Galleon and Pirate Ship Paper Models
These two sailing ship papercraft were created by the Atocha Treasure Company. On the left is the Spanish galleon Nuetstra Senora De Atocha which sank in a hurricane off the coast of Florida in 1622. Modern treasure hunters were able to locate the wreckage and salvage the Atocha's treasure in 1985. On the right is a generic model of a buccaneer pirate ship from the same time period as the Atocha. A low res template for the galleon is posted here while a low res template for the pirate ship is posted here. Pre-printed, high resolution templates may be ordered from the ATC for a price.
